What is broken elbow (left)?

A broken elbow is a break (fracture) in any of the 3 bones consisting of the elbow. A fracture can happen from many reasons such as a car accident, sports injury, or a fall. Some symptoms of a fracture include: pain, swelling, bruising, bleeding, and a feeling the joint is out of place.
